Nigel Farage has once again proven his status as Britain’s biggest whinger – complaining about the EU confiscating his mini Union Jack.
Indeed, for years Farage and his colleagues have displayed small Union Jacks on their desks in the European Parliament chamber.
However, yesterday, Parliament staff decided to remove these symbols from the desks of Brexit Party MEPs.
“We have just had our Union Jack flags removed from our desks in the European Parliament, by order of the President,” Farage tweeted. “Thank god we are leaving.”
All things considered, it looks like Farage is getting worked up about absolutely nothing.
The reason the flags were removed is entirely unclear. Farage claims that “national symbols are now banned,” but the Parliament could just have decided to remove the flags because it’s the last time the party will sit in the chamber before we leave the EU on 31st January.
As EU Flag Mafia said on Twitter, in response to Farage: “isn’t that because we’re leaving you pathetic glazed ham?”
Meanwhile, others have pointed out that Farage should perhaps be paying more attention to the costs of Brexit, rather than the treatment of his nationalist tack.
“Could be worse… I’m losing the freedom to live and work in 27 other countries at the end of month,” someone else tweeted at Farage.
Nigel Farage is a snowflake. Pass it on.
